bloody body. would 62 seconds have been enough time to support arias' scenario that a chase and struggle occurred? more than a month into her trial, jodi arias offered a brand new scenario for how the knife came into play. listen to this. >> it's possible travis grabbed the knife first. >> you never told us that he had a knife there, did you? >> no, i wasn't asked. >> jury members also had questions for arias about the knife. seems they, too, were trying to make sense of her changing stories. >> you said you remember putting the knife in the dishwasher after killing travis. but you also say you don't remember anything after dropping the knife on the bathroom tile. which is correct? >> i have a vague memory of putting a knife in the difsh washer. i'm just not sure if that's the memory from june 4th. >> and there were more questions about the gun arias used to kill alexander. was it in a holster or
3:01 am
now, suddenly, she's not so sure. and this is key because the state believes she brought a gun with her to kill alexander and never really grabbed a gun from alexander's closet. arias seemed to get tripped up, again, on whether or not the gun was loaded. >> didn't you tell the jury when you were talking about the attack in response to one of their questions that you believe the gun was unloaded. do you remember saying that? yes or no? that's all i'm asking. yes or no. do you remember saying that. >> after that, the prosecutor let her have it. >> what were you going to do with the gun? >> even jodi arias' seemed not to respond. >> in her scenario, she would have had to have run or gone somewhere to get the knife,

presumably, the kitchen. that does not fit with her story. what it fits with is that she entered that bathroom armed with a gun and a knife and that shows premeditation. from cnn world headquarters in atlanta, this is "early start weekend." a horrific bus crash that left two people dead and sends a college sports team to the hospital. how a trip to a lacrosse tournament turned into such a nightmare for these folks. strict diet regimen. two a day workouts and we're not talking about women, people. why men are are increasingly body obsessed. you know it's st. patrick's day. do you know why guinness draft tastes different depending on your bartender. how to pour the perfect pint.

i saw a lot of people on the road that i usually don't see. i'm christi paul in for randi kaye. all right, we want to begin with you this morning in steubenville, ohio, very odd on a sunday, but we're just hours from now where two high school football players on trial for rape are going to learn their fate. it is verdict day today. the judge is expected to hand down his decision around 10:00 a.m. eastern. we're talking about them being accused of raping a 16-year-old girl last summer. the girl said she was too drunk to remember what happened to her. cnn poppy harlow is following this case for us. >> after four long days of testimony in the steubenville, ohio, rape case that has certainly caught national
3:04 am
attention and some say divided this town. the fate of two teenage boys now lays in the hands of judge thomas lipp. so, prosecution and the defense on saturday night both resting their case after the alleged victim herself, that 16-year-old girl, took the stand for two hours testifying to not remembering much of that night in august when the alleged rapes occurred. i want you to listen to some closing arguments made by the attorney from trent mayes and then the attorney for malik richmond. >> no one contacts anyone. why is that? are these all bad kids? >> there's no dna on malik richmond anywhere, anywhere.
3:05 am
>> the prosecution making its closing argument saying this is not a case about consent, but about severe impairment. how much did this girl know was happening to her that night. how drunk was she? take a listen to part of what the prosecution said. >> this case isn't about social media. this case isn't about big red football, this case is about a 16-year-old girl who was taken advantage of, toyed with and humiliated. and it's time that the people who did that to her are held responsible. >> now, this is a bench trial, meaning that it is the judge, not a jury, that will make the final decision and if these boys are found guilty, the maximum sentence that they could face is until they are 21 years old because they are juveniles. >> poppy harlow there in ohio, again, thank you. we're expecting the verdict to come down at 10:00 this morning.
3:06 am
we will bring that to you on cnn. let's get to the latest troubles for carnival cruise lines. the carnival "legend" just arrived this morning at a tampa port. this is actually tape of when it happened. those problems kept the vessel from traveling at top speeds, but, again, it's in port now. despite the issues the company says the ship that you're looking at there is going it be ready to sail again this afternoon. now to pennsylvania, a memorial tonight on the campus of seton hall university near pittsburgh where they remember their lacrosse coach. susan candiotti has more details for us. >> christi, 23 people aboard the bus carrying seton hill's women's lacrosse team. the coach was three months
3:07 am
pregnant with her second child and airlifted to the hospital. she died at the scene. the rest of the passengers were rushed to area hospitals. the team's charter bus was heading east on the pennsylvania turnpike from seton hill in greensburg, just east of pittsburgh on its way across state to a game in millersville. the driver veered off the road, hit a guard rail and went 70 yards through grass and slammed into a tree. the front of the bus appears to have taken the impact. the bus company said it is also investigating an issue statement expressing its sorrow. we checked the safety record with federal authorities, there are are no accidents shown online for the past two years and the 40-year-old bus line has a satisfactory rating, the highest allowed. investigators are taking a look at everything, including the weather. a mix of rain and snow at the time, but it's not clear if
3:08 am
weather played a role. authorities will be talking with survivors, those lacrosse players and other members of the team to see if they can shed any light on what happened. there will be a mass tonight at seton hill university for the accident victims. christi? >> susan candiotti, thank you, susan, so much. >> 22 of the 23 people were transported to area hospitals. i want to talk to megan right now with the cumberland county department of safety. joining us by phone. thank you, megan, for being with us. what do we know this morning about the condition of the other women that were injured in that crash? >> we don't know the conditions of all the victims that were transported, but a good number of them have been treated and released from area hospitals and have been reunified with their parents and are back home. >> okay, so, where does this investigation stand at the moment? what do you know about that? >> well, state police are are continuing to work with, you know, with the witnesses and
3:09 am
work with the cumberland county cornner's office to look at all factors with the bus company. probably a couple days until a clear picture is gotten, but they're working diligently to figure it out. >> are many of the folks, many of the girls in the hospital able to give details? >> i mean, they will ask everybody what they remember. i don't know what details they were able to give and they will try to get what they can from each person and try to put it together like a puzzle. >> have you heard from federal investigators yet, too, megan? >> i'm not aware at this time of any federal investigators that are involved yet. it doesn't mean they won't be down the road. definitely a possibility. >> have you talked to any folks at seton hill university and what they're saying about it and how this is impacting the community? >> we were in constant contact yesterday with the folks from seton hill and, as you can expect, they are very saddened by this and a small school and
3:10 am
pulling together like a tight knit community and working to get through this afternoon. >> all right, megan, thank you so much for keeping us up to date on what's happening there. best of everything to you and your community there, as well. >> thank you very much. now, to the vatican where the new pope has just wrapped up his first sunday mass. take a look at the pope here as he's greeting some people there. pope francis has a big week ahead of him, too, but, again, this is coming from vatican tv and we thank the folks there for bringing us these images. we can anticipate a huge crowd to see him, not just now, but at 7:00 when he will give his angelouange
3:11 am
angelus, which will be at noon there. remember, the two have clashed before over the issue of same-sex marriage, which is legal in his home country. on tuesday is his inauguration mass and saturday he'll meet with retired pope benedict xvi, but, again, pictures for you there. and you can even see, look at his image on the big screen there in front of the crowds. we'll bring you live pictures of at 7:00 a.m. eastern here when he will bless all of the folks there in st. peter's square. he will come out of his apartment and bless them. we'll bring that to you, as well. a woman there kissing his hand. it looks like that is what everybody is doing, that's protocol. what a moment this is, not just for them, but for him. so many people have said and shown humility and wanted to humble himself in front of the people he serves. we'll bring you all the latest in live pictures as we continue
3:12 am
to watch what happens in vatican city. meanwhile, politics now. the action conference, also known as cpac, the darling of the last day sarah palin. here's the intro from todd cruz. >> i would not be in the senate today if it was not for sarah palin. she is prince. and courageous and. >> palin didn't disappoint with lines like this. >> remember no drama obama. if only, now it's all drama obama. we don't have leadership coming out of washington. we have reality television. >> cpac was a chance for
3:13 am
republicans to kind of lick their wounds from last year and set a course for the next election cycle, which meant looking inward, as well, at fellow republicans. >> these days, so many republicans in this town, unfortunately, seem to understand conservatism and ronald reagan as much as alec baldwin understands temper management or michael moore understands elegance or joe biden understands anything. >> ouch. >> to wrap things up on the three-day conference, the people chose their new flag bearer with a straw poll. >> coming in at 25%, senator rand paul. but, right behind him, right at his heels, literally tied, virtually tied, florida senator marco rubio. >> by the way, here are the full results there. rand and rubio up on top and

shows he sometimes have a high american express balance. we cannot verify that the information is accurate. a law enforcement official tells cnn investigators are looking into how the perpetrators got the data and whether it was hacked or not. the fbi, secret service and los angeles police are all on their trail. i spoke with michael gibbons, former head of the fbi's computer investigation's unit. >> how are investigators tracking these suspects? >> the addresses of computers will lead you to other computers and little detail file names and snippets of file and computer systems looking for an exact piece of evidence from across the globe. >> reporter: two credit agencies confirm information on their clients was accessed. how easy is it for an impersonator to fake an inquiry and get data about you from a credit agency? i called for a free credit report to learn the type of information they ask for.

happy sunday to all of you waking up in new york city. that green colored empire state building. happy st. patrick's day. you know what that is for along with the lunch of corned beef and cabbage pouring the perfect pint, though, no easy task. which is why we're joined by editorial producer nadia to show us how it's done. when we talk about the basics, i came into work today and the traffic at 3:00 a.m. was ridiculous. so, i'm thinking people started celebrating early. i will give them kudos. they had limos a lot of taxies out there, but why do so many
3:26 am
people celebrate when, come on, we're not all irish. >> they say everyone's irish on st. paddy's day. there are over 37 million americans of irish descent. that's almost six times the population of ireland. everyone is irish. even obama's great, great, great-gra great-grandfather on his mother's side hailed from a village in ireland. as you said, what would st. paddy's day be like without a pint? >> i couldn't drink, i would be under the table. >> if you to it right, if you do it right and really do it with the art and science of pouring the perfect guinness, you'll feel fabulous. >> school us on this. >> you have to take the glass and tip it at 45 degree angle. when you do it on tap what happens is the guinness is then poured, like you're seeing it over there, right? and then once it's poured and it takes a good minute and a half
3:27 am
or so, you then pause completely so that, can you see that kind of milky texture that you're seeing there, right? the whole idea is that that has to change so it looks completely dark. >> look how different that will look. >> you're seeing it there, but it gets to the point it's completely dark. then you notice what is happening, they're pouring it straight, but it becomes murky and then the idea is it becomes completely black and then you pause and wait until it all settles and then continue pouring. so, the idea is that this is the color. but you want a much foamier top otherwise known as the white foamy head of the guinness. >> last question, is that really a meal in a glass? >> guinness isn't allowed to say it's good for you, but apparently old people in ireland get told to have a guinness because it has vitamin b and antioxidants. it's only 198 calories for 16
3:28 am
ounces, which is less than orange juice or milk. so, we say -- gaelic for cheers and may good luck be with you wherever you go. >> amen to all of that. >> and blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow. >> i love it. >> happy st. paddy's day. >> happy st. paddy's day on to you. you have your green on, it looks great. i have green earrings on. thank you, nadia. we now know the names of the five u.s. service members who were killed last week in afghanistan. we also have for you for the latest in the search of a promising teacher who seems to promising teacher who seems to just vanished in new orleans. for his small business. was take these bags to room 12 please.

yesterday. a 68-year-old man and a 14-year-old boy were killed when a car lost control and slammed into that pit area there. at marysville raceway. the accident happened during warm-up laps. >> and i saw people scattering and my initial response was to make sure that driver was okay and when i saw people running so rapidly towards that area, i thought it was for the driver. then i realized when i saw people performing, you know, cpr or whatever else on the injured, that there were people on the ground and then that's when your heart sinks. >> event organizers, obviously, canceled that race, of course. let's get you to homestead, florida, where two were injured in a hot air balloon accident. this balloon had crashed into power lines. the pair suffered severe burns and now at an area hospital.

3:38 am
accumulations maybe on the grassy surfaces, but south of this, i-64, we've got a lot of showers and thunderstorms and there's actually even the threat for severe weather south of that today and tomorrow. the last winter weekend and kind of going out with a punch here for some. here is what will happen throughout the day. a wet day. st. louis and cinci. watch what happens tonight. it splits off. tomorrow morning in the ohio valley, a wet commute. here in the mid-atlantic, as well. washington to raleigh and a mix of sleet, snow and rain. by tomorrow night, these two areas kind of phase together and, believe it or not, we could see a substantial snow event tuesday into tuesday night in northern new england. maybe from burlington, vermont, through new hampshire. the green and white mountains. skiers, not over yet. we'll see that in the northeast and new england this monday and tuesday period. a big picture, there's that front. cold, though, the northern tier
